    On my 8a there is a tilt adjustment so I pulled up an image of a 9a. I think you are missing the entire assembly.

    Can't say I have ever seen a 9a before though, might be wrong.

    And so it starts again!
    Couldn't help myself... An Anthony Climax Portrait Camera I think a 16x20 but will know for sure when it turns up.... Will probably do another write up on the resto progress.

    Cool!

    Some of us really like fixing and using giant cameras. I am eager to see this one shine. I would love to know dimensions and weight when you get around to it.

    No probs Randy, it is a week or so from getting here so when it does you will be first to know.
    I am having trouble finding it in the Anthony catalogs so any info greatly appreciated. From a quick google it is from 1888 but I am not yet convinced.
